Perfect IT Partner

Unhappy with your current IT support partner but feel awkward about leaving them?

If you’re no longer getting the service you deserve, it’s OK to make a change. In fact, you owe it to your business to switch.

Contact us today and let us show you what the perfect IT partner is like.

GDPR

Are you ready for the GDPR? It’s a new set of in-depth data laws that start on May 25th.

With less than three months to go, if you’re not prepared it’s time to take action.

Contact us today to find out how to get your business compliant with the new data protection laws. The first step is a data security audit to find where you’re most at risk.

The Future is Here

The future is here. Take a look at this review of the biggest technological developments of last year and how they are changing the world as we know it.

These technologies all have staying power. They will affect the economy and our politics, improve medicine, or influence our culture. Some are unfolding now; others will take a decade or more to develop. But you should know about all of them right now.

 

.uk Domain Names

If you have owned a .co.uk, .org.uk or .me.uk domain name since June 2014 you may have the right to reserve the .uk version. You can check if you have the rights to your domain here .  If you register your .uk domain with LIS you get free domain management which means we can set up your email and website so the .uk name works smoothly with the existing .co.uk.

You rights expire next year so don’t delay, contact LIS today to order your domain and make sure you don’t miss out.

If you want to know more here are the full eligibility rules.

Cyber Security

LIS offer world class managed antivirus and antispam to keep your staff safe, firewall routers to protect your key infrastructure and all the support and guidance you need to manage the risks of running a business in this technically challenging world.

The most important data breaches reveal just how many ways data can be put at risk

 

Ready for GDPR?

We hope your business is all ready for the GDPR, the new data protection legislation that comes into force this May. You’re not? Most people aren’t. You pretty much have three options:

1) Ignore it and hope it goes away

2) Realise it affects every business. Learn what it means… but take no action

3) Enlist the help of a team of IT experts who can get your business ready

Option 3 sounds best, right? Thought so! Get in touch and we’ll get your data protected and GDPR ready in no time.

Laptop and PC users are at risk of data breaches after researchers found flaws with computer chips.

 

Cash Machine Hacker

You think computer hackers just sit around sending viruses via emails and stealing data? Think again. Now they’re attacking cash machines too, and they’ve already taken £7.5 million.

The LIS security package is not designed for cash machines but we can cover desktops, laptops and mobile devices. Contact LIS if you have any concerns.

The MoneyTaker group has also stolen banking documents that may be used in future attacks.
